About

94

"The prestigious 2006 La Grande Dame is made from 47% Chardonnay and 53% Pinot Noir, and assembles the fruit of eight grand cru villages. Very intense and complex on the nose, this is a full-bodied, round, rich and mouth-filling, but also refined prestige cuvée; it reveals a fascinating purity, precision and freshness. The finish is long and complex, and shows a spicy minerality. There are coffee beans, bread and toast aromas in the aftertaste. This comes highly recommended."

94 Wine Spectator

"A waft of spring blossom draws you into this elegant Champagne, whose subtle notes of poached quince, toasted brioche and mandarin orange gracefully ride the satiny mousse, supported by a vibrant backbone of acidity. Disgorged February 2016. Drink now through 2029."

Product Description:

"Light gold color. Complex nose, revealing turn of stone fruit fragrances, dried fruits, pastry discreet touch, gingerbread, mocha. The mouth marries vinosity precision and freshness. Nice length. Opulent vintage, a great Grande Dame." -Gilbert and Gaillard
